| I speak of course, of the troll wars 
| pertaining to Linux vs Windows vs Mac. Now, 
| unfortunately, Macs tend to get away pretty 
| well in these arguments, because regardless 
| of how much open source software they steal 
| and how much they try to push forward the 
| boundaries of Vendor Lock-In, they are still 
| the under dog in comparison to Microsoft, so 
| MOST people, tend to leave them alone. The

| certain Steven J Vaughan-Nichols (Or SJVN to 
| most of us).

| things from us. Heck, just say neutral things about us-we'll give
| you a killer new laptop and we know that you'll be inclined to say
| better things about us.

| It could be that they are reaching out to bloggers who are Mac users
| (I switched to a Mac back when OS X came out) or it might just be that
| people I know who work for Microsoft or other influential bloggers
| recommended me
